Carth Onasi hospital? I think I'd Rather name a syndrome after him, but i guess a mental hospital is fine too!

I like this comic already!

ehh. Sorry to say, but it seems that you have forgotten eezo tanker disaster in his/her childhood.
kato42 Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2012
Yeah, I figure Shepard would just be a teeny bit PTSD.
famma Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2012
I don't know if I wrote it long ago when I have found this comic, but I had the same combination for my Shep.
Just more reasons to hate Cerberus :P

Carth Onasi Mental Hospital eh?
Riveriia Featured By Owner May 30, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
XDDD i love sole survivor. But I always choose Earthborn--I love the idea of my Shepard being a total street rat who signs up for the Alliance. (And... somehow becomes mostly paragon but takes all the renegade interrupts. Let's face it--if you dont take renegade interrupts, you life will NEVER be complete)
RadicalDanny Featured By Owner Edited Aug 17, 2015
My fem Shep is an orphan from Earth and sole survivor too!
Also with vanguard training. ^^

And she generally ends up a paragon with a few renegade points as well... XD

Only have done Mass Effect 1 though XD
Riveriia Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oohhh yeah I loved ME1!  You should totally play the rest too, just for the sake of getting the whole story.  ME1 was fantastic, but all of the games have their merit.  Like the combat in ME3 was hella.  The story/people of ME2 was hella.
RadicalDanny Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2015
Well I am on a 2nd playthrough of ME1 after I found out I missed a lot of side quests XD

I did the very beginning of ME2 but after getting used to ME1 controls I found really hard to get into :(
Also what's the deal of suddenly needing ammo?! :\
Riveriia Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh heck yeah ME1 has so many side quests XD.  I'm such a completionist when it comes to gaming, and I went through literally every planet thoroughly with the mako.  Yeah needing ammo in ME2 was my least favorite part of the game, but you actually don't run out of ammo very often.  Especially when you're a Vanguard and you can just biotic charge your way through everything.  Seriously play as a vanguard in ME2 and ME3 because I think I only fired a gun like... less than a dozen times.  It was always with biotic charge and melee.  The controls take a little time to get used to, especially since a lot of stuff switched around after ME1, but the game ends up being super fun to play.
RadicalDanny Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2015
I want to go over EVERY planet too and get as many map markers as possible ^^
If I see an unmarked place on the radar I WILL make a detour for it. XD

Well my Shepard is a Vanguard, Commander "Angel" Shepard. ;)
And I intend to port her over to each game. ^^

I'm really upset about the ammo thing, the Codex in the first game gave a very good explanation that you didn't need ammo any more. :\
Riveriia Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Man I know right!?  I loved reading about that cool little detail.  Apparently the excuse was that it's not "ammo," instead it's "thermal clips" so the guns don't overheat anymore.  The guns still work the same way, but now they run on heat clips so you don't have the overheating problem.  It just seems like a step backwards when it comes to innovation and improvement, though.  The actual reason for it was that BioWare wanted to make Mass Effect a little more FPS-like.  The first one was more RPG stype (which is my favorite kind of game), but they've been working on their Dragon Age series which fulfilled their RPG audience, and they wanted to cater to more people.  It was more a business progression than a lore-related one.
RadicalDanny Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2015
aww :(

I much preferred the overheat thing.
There were plenty of ways upgrades to make it a mood point anyway, as no competent soldier would shoot a continues stream of bullets... XD

Shooting in bursts and with the right perks and/or mods and you do not ever overheat. ^^

"Carth Onasi Mental Hospital."

Schezki Featured By Owner May 20, 2012
That's just heartbreaking! (Why am I giggling then?)
fanglish Featured By Owner May 15, 2012
Damn... I kinda hate Carth. Always blamed him for turning Revan's ship into a mental refuge for weirdoes with issues.

JelenaEllethil Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I never choose this background. Earthborn and a war hero, but I might try it before ME3 comes along.

I'm repeating what others said but... Welcome to the Carth Onasi's mental hospital is a hilarious panel. :lol:
Demonizer68 Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2011
Same thing that happened to my Fem Shepard, except the Nervous breakdown part, more like moved on, hit people who pissed her off (which was quite a few) and then got cosy with an Asari!

IvySaravan Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
My Shepard has this past, but I kinda picture her being like "You know what, at this point, I just don't care :bored: " Love this comic :la:


It's not that I hate you so much as if you were on fire and I had a glass of water... I'd drink it :onfire:
Bjarru Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
Yep. Though I play as colonist Hero. But... I always wanted to start like this. Kinda reflects my past...
